    There can be no doubt that serendipity exists and that is very important. The discovery of something you were not looking for is as normal as it is extraordinary. I have an eclectic mind and my phantasy makes me wander from one subject,or one field to another. Reading about...

    I do believe in getting what you can out of what comes your way. Yeah I'm an opportunist. I don't think that 'everything happens for a reason' But I do think you can find 'reasons for everything'. Do you catch my drift? Cm
